  • Notes 
    • Stewart Baldwin: "According to the official Uí Máil pedigree, Senach was son of Cáirthenn Muach, son of Etarscél, son of "engus Ailche, son of Fergus Forcraid, son of Tuathal Tigech, son of Maine Mál (eponym of Uí Máil), who was in turn the supposed brother of the mythical Cathair Már. An alternate version makes Tuathal Tigech the son of Mac Locc son of Cathair Már. Senach is mentioned in AU (633) as the grandfather of king Crimthann mac Áeda of Leinster, and the genealogies in R give the names of younger sons for both Senach and his son Áed, both good indications that Senach was historical. On the other hand, Senach's predecessors in the genealogy are nothing but a string of names back to the point where the genealogy becomes clearly mythical. Thus, even though we cannot rule out the possibility that a couple of generations before Senach are correct, Senach is the point at which the genealogy becomes clearly historical."
